Teen Mums Support
Teen Mums Support is a strategic intervention for vulnerable adolescents girls focused on three thematic areas – reintegration to formal education, provision of psychosocial support and skills acquisition. Some girls get pregnant while they are in secondary schools because of voluntary early sex and peer pressure.
The impacts of teenage pregnancy often ruin girls’ lives, whether they are married or not, whether they engaged in sex willingly or were forced. Typically, they drop out of school and do not acquire any skills that would help them earn money. If they aren’t married already, they normally end up in bad marriages, wedded to their child’s father who often is too young for parenthood himself. Through this project, Knit Together provides them with a reintegration and skills building opportunities to a meaningful life. This project is open for partnership
